XOXO November Challenge #13 - She's 26

The new scraplift challenge is up over at XOXO and I am so excited to announce that I am now part of the design team too! My creation is above. All you have to do to enter is head over to the site, lift one (or more) of the lovely layouts listed and link up your project. Now I know creating is rewarding in itself, but in this case you also have the chance to win an awesome prize package courtesy of Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. I saw lots of Crate's Mitten Weather!! Scrap Attack carries all the latest with 10 percent off MSRP everyday and another bonus - they also give reward points to repeat customers. Well worth stopping by.

This page is about me, age 26. Where I'm at, where I thought I'd be and what I still hope to do. Having young kids is a lot of work and sometimes you lose sight of who you were before that little person became the center of the universe. Now I realize you can't put yourself on the back burner and still feel fulfilled. 

To make the other wings, I traced the JBS butterfly, misted with Cherry Maya mist and edged with gold puffy paint. I also put dimensional adhesive behind the wings to help them stand.

More butterflies with an accelerator gauge to represent how fast life speeds by - you really have to take it by the reins to make the most of it. 

Hope you'll stop over and have a lift! xoxo
